I had an infusion of Reclast three days ago for

I had an infusion of Reclast three days ago for the first of yearly treatments for osteoporosis and elevated blood calcium. I have been taking Alendronate 70 mg weekly for several years for osteoporosis. The side affect of indigestion and vomiting has affected me for that time. May I now stop taking Alendronate since I am taking Reclast?

My osteoporosis is -3.7 in my spine. (I work out three times a week.) I took Fosamx for over 10 years. The doctor told me to try Reclast infusion. I did my research homework and have to admit the nurse went over the possible side effects; so I had Reclast 10 days ago. Within hours I had a terrible head ache. Woke up in the middle of the night with dizziness, head ache, temperature of 101.7 ( my temp is usually 97.6), and upset stomach. I am on day nine and still suffering with these side effects. Doctor has me on two pain meds that help some. I am SO UPSET with myself for allowing myself to be talked into taking this drug. How much longer will these adverse symptoms last? I DID NOT KNOW I HAVE TO PAY. SO SORRY TO TAKE UP YOUR TIME.
